I decided to make some paper flower covered Easter eggs yesterday. They were a bit time-consuming, but really very easy to do.
If you would like to make some, too, here are the supplies that you will need:
-paper mache or wooden eggs
-acrylic paints in your choice of colors
-paper flowers or
-flower punches and your choice of papers (scrapbook, vintage wallpaper, etc...)
-paper glue or glue gun
Begin by painting your eggs in the color(s) that you want and allow them to dry completely. They don't need to be perfect because the paint will hardly be seen beneath the paper flowers.
If you are not using pre-made paper flowers (such as Prima) , you will need to punch out a bunch of paper flowers yourself. The amount you will need will vary depending on the size of your eggs and the size of the flower you are using, but you will need quite a few per egg.
Next, simply glue the paper flowers all around the egg. I found it helpful to start at one end and work my way down - this ensured that I didn't end up with any awkward "bald" spots. Allow the eggs to dry.
That's it. Pretty paper flower covered eggs!
This one is covered with flowers punched out from a variety of vintage wallpaper - a great way to use up your precious scraps!
I love how this one turned out - it's covered in paper Hydrangea petals.
These were so much fun to make! You should try them if you get a chance!
